Time to wear a bit of red to show your support for the troops!


Lindsay Lohan's crocodile tears mixed with confident smiles
didn't help her in court. The silly dingbat was confident on 
getting out ealy, like Paris Hilton, but clearly did not realize
that the sentence was booby-trapped with return tickets:
All kinds of probation, which in the case of an undisciplined 
spoiled brat just mean a delayed sentence.

For a heart warmer: 
92 year old lady beats up three robbers

"I've just had the most awful time," said a boy to his friends. "First I got angina pectoris, then arteriosclerosis. Just as I was recovering, I got psoriasis. They gave me hypodermics, and to top it all, tonsillitis was followed by appendectomy." "Wow! How did you pull through?" sympathized his friends. "I don't know yet," the boy replied. "but it sure was the toughest spelling test I ever had!"

An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD goes to Nicole Scott, 27 in Sandusky, Ohio Drunk pulled herself over SANDUSKY, Ohio - Police in Ohio can't take too much credit for stopping a woman they say was drinking and driving - they say she pulled herself over. Officers in the town of Sandusky say the woman stopped because she thought she saw police lights, but it turns out the flashing lights were from a skating rink sign. The Sandusky Register reports that the woman's car got stuck in a snowbank near the sign when she stopped early Monday and another motorist called police. Officers say they took 27-year-old Nicole Scott to jail on charges of operating a vehicle under the influence. Police say Scott denied she had been driving. Yeah, right. It mush have been the schnow man, but he melted wish all the glullible drinkin, ah, ah mean glullible warning, ah, whatever it isch that causesch all the schnow.
From the Tech Support Pits: From: Alex Re: W7 even slower than it used to be Dear Webby Yeah, I know, getting W7 was a dumb idea. No need to rub it in. Lately, though, it has gotten even slower than it used to be. Why is that, and what can I do about it? Alex Dear Alex Windows in general, and W7 in particular, give sloppy programming a bad name. A lot of stuff is duplicated all over the place. Microsoft says, that is inevitable when over 40,000 different programmers in many different countries work on a project, and that we should be glad it runs at all. You can get auto-runs from Technet. It is free. It will show you which programs and procedures are started automatically, when you boot up. Scary! You CAN weed out stuff, that you don't need, but be careful! Microsoft often labels different sub programs with the same name. However, it is quite safe to use for weeding out tool bars, that you don't want anyway, old mouse drivers, and any other third party items, that are obsolete. On most macines, that will speed up the boot-up quite nicely, because Windows won't waste time searching for partially un-installed items. To really make a difference, though, you need a high quality Registry Booster. Yes, I know, there are all kinds of free Registry tuners available. They are usually worth about as much as you pay for them. With Registry Booster you will immediately see a very noticeable difference. However, if you manually weed out even more than it does, Windows might not start up again. Have FUN! DearWebby

Bob was on vacation, playing the slot machines. It was his first time in a casino, and he wasn't sure how the machines operated. "Excuse me." he said to a casino employee. "How does this work?" The worker showed him how to insert a bill, hit the spin button, and operate the release handle. "And where does the money come out?" he asked. He smiled and motioned to a far wall before saying, "Usually at the ATM."
Daily tip from Thriftyfun.com Storing Fishing Lures Fishing season is just around the corner. Pick up CD organizers that have separate compartments to store all your fishing rigs, sinkers, small lures, etc. They keep everything tangle free and easy to find. You can find the CD organizers at rummage sales this spring. They're inexpensive and effective. Source: Fishing magazine By annelaundrie from green bay, wi http://www.thriftyfun.com/ Personally, I do the opposite! I use tackle boxes for first aid kits, nail and bolt bins for small screws, bolts and nails, one for garden hose and plumbing fittings, even one to hold all the different types of glue I ocasionally need. Just don't send a glue box like that by air! I made that mistake once, many years ago. Dad had admired my glue box, each glue in it's own little compartment. So I put together a tackle box just like that, and sent it to him for Christmas. For one reason or another, most of the glue tubes and containers burst open and permanently glued the box shut. Not a single tray folded out after that. So I sent him another tackle box and a gift certificate for stocking it with 25 types of glue. Have FUN!

A teenager was headed to school one morning when his mom told him that the neck tag on his shirt was hanging out. "I know," he replied. "It's a fad me and some of the guys started." Weeks later, as the style persisted, she commented, "I can't stand it! Every time I see that, I want to fix it for you." She gently tucked the tag in place and rumpled his hair. "Yeah," he said smiling slyly. "All the girls do that."

The census taker knocked on Donna's door. She answered all his questions except one. She refused to tell him her age. "But everyone tells their age to the census taker," he said. "Did Miss Maisy Hill, and Miss Daisy Hill tell you their ages?" she asked. "Certainly," he replied "Well, I'm the same age as they are," she snapped. "OK, I'll just write down: 'As old as the Hills'," he told her as he safely stepped out of reach.
